A Welsh MP has called a debate over the increased use of food banks in Wales and to highlight "the cost of living crisis" facing families in poverty.

The number of people relying on food banks in Wales has increased over the last year, rising from just over 10,000 to just below than 30,000 said Cardiff West MP Kevin Brennan.

"The sheer scale of the numbers is the issue", he added.
